After All, Foundation»
Are Things That Count
As you have watched a sky
scraper rise slowly from a deep
foundation, has It ever occurred to
you to liken your life to the erect-
!r.g of u building? A huge sky
scraper was under construction In
our neighborhood. It seemed to take
a long time to dig the foundation.
Progress In getting the basement
built also appeared very slow. It
took quite a while for the walls to
Ise to the street level. After that,
jowever, the skyscraper rose rapld-
y. To anyone who bad not fol
lowed the early stages, It rnuBt have
ippeared that the building towered
.ip almost overnight.
Isn’t It very much the same with
« successful career? Every now and
«gain a man seems to climb spec
tacularly. To those who don’t know
him, his progress looks phenome
nal. But that Is because they have
not followed closely all the founda-
’lon-laylng the man has done. Usu
ally those least astonished by a big
man’s rise ure those who have been
most familiar with his earlier rec
ord. They have seen the digging,
■he planning, the sweating. Any
man who aspires to raise a monu
ment to himself must first expend
endless toil In preparing the right
